Forgotten Stamp Friday 28

Happy Friday everyone!! Since it is Friday, at least for a little while longer, lol, it is time for Forgotten Stamp Friday. Sorry I am running so behind today, life....sometimes it doesn't always go the way I plan.

If you aren't familiar with this challenge, it is a personal challenge that I have posed to myself to make me use some of my un-inked, unused, and neglected stamps. The only rule is that it has to have been un-inked or owned for 6 months. Digi images count, as well...we tend to collect those, and then never use them, too! If you decide to play along, just be sure to enter your name in the Mr. Linky, and when uploading to an online gallery, use the keyword..FSF28!!!

For tonight's card, I used a SUPER cute Pure Innocence set, Splish Splash. He was stamped on X-Press It Blending Card, and then colored with my Copics. I used Blue Raspberry, Orange Fizz, and Fossil card stock. My paper is from the My Mind's Eye Lime Twist Fly a Kite. My white ribbon is from the Ribbon Carousel, and my orange is from Michael's. I also used some Caribbean Twine. The brads I used are from Michael's, and I used SU punches for my sentiment. I also used the Simply Scalloped Medium Die-namics.

For the inside, I used more of the same supplies, and another sentiment from this adorable set.

Well, that is it for me for now! Thanks for stopping by, and I can't wait to see if you play along!

It's Teaser Time!

It is time for this month's My Favorite Things teasers to start, and I am DYING with excitement. I LOVE each release just a little bit more every month, don't you??!! Tonight, we have two gorgeous sets to show you: Clearly Sentimental about Sympathy, and By the Numbers. For my card, I chose to use the Sympathy set....but before we get there, here are some details about this month's goings on!!

Here are the details about the upcoming release on August 2 at 10 PM EST:

  • The MFT release is on August 2 at 10 PM EST. You can attend the release party from 8-10 PM EST here in the forum for fun, games, and prizes! All the new sets and dies will be available August 2 at 10 PM EST.

I started by stamping my sentiment from the Clearly Sentimental about Sympathy set, on a piece of GP White. I then used my Framed Greetings Die-namics to cut it out. I then used the soon to be released, new Fancy Flourish Die-namics to cut out my flourishes in Banana Split(MFT) and Going Gray(SU). My paper is from the Authentique Blissful pad. My ribbon is from the Ribbon Carousel. My circle was cut out using the new, soon to be released, Open Scalloped Doily Duo Die-namics. The brads I used are from Michael's. For sympathy cards, I try to keep them pretty simple, but I prefer this is where I ended up.

Well, that is it for me for today! I will be back later with this week's Forgotten Stamp Friday challenge.
Be sure to head to Kim's for a list of designers participating in today's teasers. Thanks for stopping by!
